Cloud computing: Resolving some sticky questions

Published on: Aug 23, 2018

For many companies, the cloud computing debate is over. They are no longer asking if they should move to the cloud; instead, they are asking when and how. And while the timing and degree of adoption may vary, many companies now recognize cloud’s compelling capabilities and are making it an integral part of their technology infrastructure and business platform strategies.

The promise of cloud is not lost on finance chiefs: In the Q3 2016 CFO Signals™ survey, cloud computing easily outpaced other emerging digital technologies in terms of deployment, with 80% of respondents saying they used cloud in some form, and in the Q3 2017 edition, process automation via cloud-based services was relatively popular among CFOs who cited substantial implementations.

As companies explore cloud’s various potential impacts and business uses, however, CFOs are finding that sticky questions related to accounting, fees, and analysts’ concerns keep popping up.

And in this issue of CFO Insights, we will address ways CFOs can answer those questions and steer conversations and strategies to the potential implications of cloud migration.
